One of those is ISA?

I should have been more clear... does interrupt sharing work on IDE
controllers or perhaps it doesn't because some of them have funny
ISA-like hardware attached to them which seems to stuff things up.

PCI devices will happily share interrupts with other PCI devices. but
I've never seen an ISA and a PCI device share the same interrupt,
this was what I was questioning...

(Of course, if the IDE controllers are purely PCI device, this
doesn't matter. I really wish someone like Mark Lord would chime in
